Lifelines (Lebenslinien)

Sound: Alexander Wehner

Lebenslinien/Lifelines, is the first movie within the “Dark Series,” based on abstracted movements of the human body. The video is shot in complete darkness highlighting the spine as the center of the human body, its trunk, where all nerves meet and from where they depart. The minimalistic images as a result are resemblance of our origin, the beginning of life – the picture of the small within the big and vice versa. As humans we understand and define each other through the Other, thus the sense of self is shaped through the dual process of give and take within encounters.
